One of the advantages of Guided Fantasy techniques is their flexibility and adaptability to diverse settings.I shall describe my general approach to fantas in counseling  situations; see my paper (Kelly, 1972) for further detail. The effectiveness of Guided Fantasy seems to depend on several factors: the characteristics of the client, how well the counselor has introduced and structured the situation, and  the  effectiveness of the counselor’s guiding during the actual situation.

Client characteristics. There are  several client characteristics that seem to especially reliable in predicting a positive outcome from a  fantasy experience in counselling or therapy:

  1. Deep  commitment to the counseling process and its  goals.
  2. Willingness to share the responsibility for the  counselingrelationship and to work toward growth and  change.
  3. Trust in the counselor,whose accepting manner is firmly established.
  4. Lack of  intense anxiety or undue concern over  increasing     insight,fantasies, or  dreams.
  5. Some  comprehension of the existence of  unconscious  needs,motivations, and  repressions.
  6. Willingness to participate in a Guided Fantasy without viewing   theexperience  as unduly threatening,  mystical, or unorthodox.

Some clients simply indicate they are afraid of such methods or would prefer not to participate in them. Some  therapists would interpret this as resistance to be broken down; I prefer to respect the client’s wishes.
